FOC’s Jointed Jewels

By on October 3rd, 2010 in Design


Freedom of Creation, one of the most dynamic artistic users of 3D printing technology have recently collaborated with Alissia Melka-Teichroew to produce “Jointed Jewels”. These artistic jewellery items were made using selective laser sintering, one of the few technologies capable of producing a ball joint in a single operation. 
While each jewelry item appears unique, with different shapes, arrangements and colors, they are all in fact the same underlying ball-joint design simply repeated multiple times. Even more interesting is the fact that these items were produced “all in one go” using the 3D printing technology. No assembly required! 
As 3D print technology becomes more accessible to all, we predict seeing an increasing number of amazing designs and ideas brought to reality. In blue, too!
